About Cystitis & Urinary Tract Infections

Cystitis is a urinary tract infection (UTI) that causes inflammation of the bladder and urethra. Cystitis can affect people of all ages and is more common in women due to their shorter urethra; however, men can also suffer from it.

Cystitis is a lower UTI, meaning it has mild symptoms that can be treated with antibiotics, compared to more severe infections (upper UTIs) that can cause kidney infections.

What causes Cystitis & UTIs?

The primary cause of cystitis is a bacterial infection. The design of a woman’s urinary tract makes women more susceptible to these infections, and factors such as sexual activity or pregnancy can also increase the risk of developing cystitis.

It’s essential to treat cystitis effectively with UTI antibiotics or over-the-counter cystitis medication to prevent it from reoccurring. Those suffering from recurring cystitis can be due to the body’s inability to effectively fight off bacteria from entering the bladder. Some other factors that can cause recurring cystitis include:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Weakened immune system
  • Having sex
  • Being pregnant
  • Having diabetes

If you keep getting cystitis, speak to a pharmacist or your GP so they can advise you on the best treatment.

Cystitis Symptoms

Cystitis and other UTIs often present with symptoms that can vary in intensity. If they continue or worsen during treatment, consult one of our pharmacists or your GP.

These symptoms include:

  • A burning sensation or discomfort when urinating
  • The urge to urinate more frequently
  • Passing frequent, small amounts of urine.
  • Cloudy urine, which may have a strong odour.

Some symptoms of a UTI require medical attention, as they could be a sign of a more severe infection. You should seek medical attention if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever and feeling shivery
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blood in your urine
  • Pain in the back or lower abdominal area

How do I treat Cystitis?

Women experiencing mild symptoms can typically treat the infection themselves; however, speaking to a pharmacist or GP is necessary if symptoms are severe or if it’s your first UTI. Following a UTI test, there are different treatment methods for treating Cystitis & other UTIs; these include:

UTI Antibiotics

A short course of antibiotics is the most common form of treatment for cystitis, depending on the severity of the infection. Some of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics for cystitis include Trimethoprim 200mg tablets and Nitrofurantoin 100mg capsules. You can buy UTI antibiotics from our online pharmacy following a short consultation with one of our licenced pharmacists; once approved, we’ll have your prescription sent directly to your door.

Over-the-counter Cystitis Medication

Click2Pharmacy’s online cystitis clinic offers Cystitis Sachets to help relieve symptoms. When dissolved in water, these sachets reduce urine acidity, easing the burning sensation during urination. Alongside this, you should:

  • Drink plenty of water to flush out bacteria.
  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and spicy foods.
  • Practice good hygiene.

If symptoms continue or worsen, consult one of our pharmacists or your GP.

Cystitis Medication FAQs

Mild Cystitis symptoms can often be treated at home with increased water intake, pain relief like paracetamol, and over-the-counter cystitis medication like relief sachets. However, if symptoms persist or worsen, consult a GP or pharmacist.

Good hygiene practices, staying hydrated, urinating after sexual intercourse, and avoiding irritants like scented soaps can help prevent Cystitis. If you frequently get Cystitis, a GP may suggest additional preventive measures.

Antibiotics are typically prescribed for treating Cystitis, especially if symptoms are severe or persistent. It’s important to complete the course of antibiotics prescribed by our licenced pharmacists or your GP to prevent symptoms from reoccurring.

If it’s your first time experiencing cystitis symptoms, if your symptoms are severe (like blood in the urine or back pain), or if you have recurrent Cystitis, you should see a GP for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Mild cases of cystitis usually go away within a few days and can clear without intervention. However, If your symptoms don’t improve after three days, you should speak to a pharmacist or GP to discuss treatment options.

Cystitis is not a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Sexual activity can cause an episode of Cystitis due to bacteria transfer, but it isn’t contagious. However, it’s advised to avoid sexual activity for a few days whilst treating cystitis to prevent any other bacteria.

If you think you could have an STI you should find your nearest sexual health clinic and get tested.

After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
